Adjusting Type B Body Constitution

马晓山

As practitioners of life cultivation, we like to adjust our body so that our body is in perfect balance and we are in perfect health.

The Type A constitution is referred to as the Pinghe Type, or the Neutral and Balanced type. This type of body constitution is the perfectly healthy body. All other types of body constitution is deviation from the Pinghe type.

We will differentiate the basic characteristics of each body constitution type. We will then discuss how we can adjust our body so that they become the Type A body constitution.

Herbal medicine is a practical science. In the long course of its development, many schools and branches of herbal medicine have undergone changes. However, with the progress of time, herbal medicine has evolved with time, although many people still misunderstand herbal medicine.

We may sum up herbal medicine with just one sentence.

Take the power of nature, coupled with the good fortune of God, we will achieve the beauty of success.

Classification of Body Constitution

The classification of body constitution is a relatively new concept. It was developed in the last thirty years.

Let us ask ourselves. Is our body a teddy bear or a fine lady?

Although everyone looks human on the outside, they are very different inside. With the onslaught of various bad lifestyles, we have developed mental stress leading to hair loss, inability to sleep and poop, etc. There are fewer and fewer healthy people.

Many people will say that humans are living longer now compared to that of a caveman and that proves that we are healthier than before.

But which is more important, quality of life or length of life? Actually, it’s all important. If we spend the rest of our life in bed, is it not a tragedy?

Thus, we will look into different types of body constitution, and the adjustment thereof.

Let us recap the different types of body constitution below.

Type A Pinghe (Normal, Typical, Neutral, Balanced Type)
Type B Qixu (Energy-deficient Type)
Type C Yangxu (Yang-deficient Type)
Type D Yinxu (Yin-deficient Type)
Type E Tanshi (Phlegm-moisture Type)
Type F Shire (Moisture-heat Type)
Type G Xueyu (Blood-stasis Type)
Type H Qiyu (Energy-depressed Type)
Type I Tebing (Special-intrinsic Type)

Well, these nine body constitution all have different characteristics, manifestations, and specific disease tendencies. However, we have different techniques to adjust our body so that it will return to its perfectly healthy state.

Here we will share our knowledge. We hope everyone can sit down and take decisive measures as soon as possible to attain perfect health. This way you will rejuvenate your body to that of an eighteen-years old again.

Let us discuss the different body constitution one by one. Let us continue with the Type B Energy-deficient Body Constitution.

Characteristics of a Type B Body

The Type B Body Constitution is characterized by insufficient vital- energy. There are two body constitutions that are very similar and they all involve the energy level of the body. The Type B Energy-deficient body type is related to emotion, and the Type H Energy-depressed body type is related to the mentality state.

The energy-deficient body constitution can be summed up in the following aspects.

The color of the lips and tongue of a person with such a body constitution is very light. He often feels tired and weak. He does not like to get up in the morning.

He loses weight easily because of energy-deficiency. He was unable to drive the transformation and absorption of nutrients, so it is easy for him to lose weight.

The muscles on the body are very soft, and it is often prone to hypotension.

He has difficulty pooping. He has to hold his breath to defecate. Because of the deficiency of energy, he finds it hard to poop directly and happily when he defecates. Even when he works hard, only a small piece will come out.

Only when almost all of these characteristics are present can we judge the existence of this type of body constitution. If it is just one or two points, the person does not fall into this classification of body type.

Causes

The core reasons for an energy-deficient body constitution are:

  • Lack of proper nutrition all year round.
  • Excessive sadness or sorrow.
  • Excessive consumption of the body’s foundation such as indulgence, staying up late, sedentary, irregular diet and so on.

There is also a situation that will cause an energy-deficiency to suddenly occur. For example, a person who has experienced a huge fright or fear or sadness. The vital-energy flow will be weakened for an instant, leading to a weakened blood flow.

When that happens, the human body’s instinct is to give priority to ensure the operation of the heart. and then the accessory parts will not be managed. A case in point is Mr. Wu Zixu a thousand years ago. His hair turned white overnight when he was afraid for his life.

Adjustment

For a person with an energy-deficient body constitution, he must pay attention to strengthening the spleen and nourishing the spleen. Strictly speaking, the kidneys are the innate foundation of men, the liver is the innate foundation of women, and the spleen and stomach are the acquired foundation of both men and women.

If a person is deficient in innate foundation, he or she will look thin and he or she will have wrinkles. However, it is not permanent damage. Once they have enough nutrition, they will have abundant vital-energy and blood, and they will become very active in one or two days.

As we know, for people with deficient vital-energy, the proper remedy is to increase his nutrition intake, so as to nourish and strengthen his spleen. Refer to Mustang Dietary Technique for more information on this topic.

For a person with an energy-deficient body constitution, he should watch his diet. His food should be nerve-calming, not overly salty, too cold or too hot, just be neutral. The reason is very simple. Only a calm body can produce vigorous and normal vital-energy in the body.

People with an energy-deficient body must avoid cold winds, especially when sleeping at night. He should not open the window. He is weak due to an energy-deficient body. If he loses more energy to a bad environment, it will only make things worse.
